    does anyone have any info on them?

    I am a novice to trading, so I am wondering if this would be a good place to start.

    If not, can anyone else point me in the right direction?

    I am a college grad. I run my own business, but I am trying to switch to trading (my business is real blue colar work, with a cap on its growth potential. plus its boring.)

    I've read quite a bit of the forums. If theres any major post that give a ton of info, id love to be linked to those aswell.

    What makes you think trading in this realm is white collar? To me, it's more blue collar than anything. Traditionally, white-collar workers earn a monthly or annual salary. Trading has financial downside, unlike most white-collar jobs.

    The vast majority of retail and prop traders in electronic markets are merely customers of the exchanges on which they trade, and of the clearing party that introduces them to the exchange.

    It's white colar in comparison to my current work.

    If you spend most of your day at a desk, it cant be labeled blue colar. Maybe not an elite white colar job, but def not blue colar work.

    Thanks for the link
